Can CFS produce the roof trusses YOU need for your projects?

Quality assurance, and the sourcing of cost-effective, superior materials, is a primary concern in any modern building project. One approach that can make a substantial difference in project quality and efficiency is to use roof trusses made with cold formed steel (CFS).

What Is Cold-Formed Steel Framing and How Can I Use It?

Because Cold-formed steel (CFS) framing is light weight, extremely strong, noncombustible, and relatively easy to install, it has dominated the market for interior, non-loadbearing partition walls in commercial construction. Now, with advanced technological developments like panelized systems, the building community is using CFS for structural applications in mid-rise and multi-housing buildings.

Cold-Formed Steel Vs. Wood Frame Construction

Recently, a major fire raced through the AvalonBay at Edgewater apartment community in New Jersey, destroying several hundred units and displacing the residents of the luxury development in the middle of winter.

Prefabrication: The New Face of Construction

Prefabrication has long been touted as the answer to smarter, faster, and safer construction. The prefabrication revolution is quietly changing the way engineering and construction works. Many companies are starting to see how this change in construction is enhancing their business and granting a competitive edge, particularly when paired with the right materials.

Cold-Formed Steel: Beyond Non structural Interior Walls

Although some builders may think of cold-formed steel (CFS) as an ideal material for interior framing, that’s not the extent of its utility. CFS delivers many advantages in the construction of wall panels, floor joists, roof trusses, and structural walls as well.
